He was chosen by the Seattle SuperSonics with the second overall pick, and he played for them for 13 seasons. After scoring 13 points and dishing out ten assists in a victory over the Nuggets on the road, Gray notched his first double-double in his third game.

Payton won the NBA championship in 2006, won two gold medals at the Olympics, was named defensive player of the year in 1996 and was a nine-time NBA All-Star, nine-time member of the All-NBA, and a nine-time member of the All-Defensive First Team. Along with assists and made 3-pointers in 1999-2000, The Glove also rose to the top of the league in steals in 1995-96.
